On-Prem or Cloud Versions
Deep Recursive Scan Through All Layers of an Alpine Package
On-Prem - Self-managed. Install, manage, and maintain on your hardware or host in the cloud yourself. Cloud - Software as a Service (SaaS). JFrog manages, maintains and scales the guaranteed uptime. Xray Cloud uses Kubernetes technology. At this time, only some of AWS (EKS) managed Kubernetes service regions are available. JFrog is working with AWS to enable the other regions as soon as possible. JFrog is also working with Azure (AKS) and Google Cloud Platform (GKE) to make Xray Cloud available on their managed Kubernetes service.
Xray recursively peels away the different layers of your Alpine packages and their dependencies ensuring that every software artifact that is included in your software has been scanned for license issues and vulnerabilities.
When a vulnerability is detected, Xray shows you all the Alpine packages that contain the infected artifact so you can instantly understand the impact that any vulnerable layer has on all packages in your system.
Even when packages uploaded to your Alpine repositories in Artifactory are given a clean bill of health, Xray continues to scan them to make sure they are not infected with any new vulnerabilities that are registered with Xray’s global vulnerability database.
As applications, teams, and deployment infrastructure grow in complexity, developing and releasing software becomes more complicated. Xray helps reduce the cost, time, and risk of delivering changes by allowing for more incremental updates to applications in production. It allows you to drill down or zoom out to identify the exact component. Xray offers a highly available active-active cluster architecture, ensuring continuous security and governance to your software packages at an enterprise level. Achieve optimal performance and resilience by scaling your Xray environment with as many nodes as you need. All workload is delegated across available cluster nodes, through a load balancer, and shared between nodes. Xray seamlessly and instantly synchronizes all data, configuration, cached objects and scheduled job changes across all cluster nodes.
Through Xray’s integration with common CI servers, you can stop infected builds from ever getting to your repositories. During the build process, Xray will notify your CI server if an infected artifact is being included in your Alpine packages so the build can be halted before completion.
Using the JFrog IDEA Plugin, Xray scans projects right in the developer's IDE providing information on Alpine components and their dependencies. This allows the developer to make an informed decision on whether to use a component or not before it gets entrenched in the organization's product. Then, during CI/CD, Xray can stop builds that include infected components, and in production, Xray continuously scans production systems for any new issues and vulnerabilities that have been discovered. Effectively, Xray covers the full lifecycle of components in the software supply chain.
